Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car!

1967 Volvo 122S for Sale (Drive By and Test Drive)
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-volvo-122/ to see this fun sporty
1967 Volvo 122S for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The previous owner was a real racing fanatic. He learned to build engines
and adjust a cars suspension and engine for maximum handling. This car
spent 18 years in Oregon with the previous owner, and although it was never
raced on a track, it was built for speed and handling.
The current owner is also a loving car enthusiast. The engine, suspension
and paint were all nice when the current owner bought the car in 2011, but
even so he continued to make improvements on the car. The stainless steel
Exhaust is one of the more notable
additions the car received since it found a new home here in Minnesota.
This '67 Volvo is the sixth car I've listed for the current seller. So
don't let the short ownership make you think this car is not loved and
appreciated like crazy. The seller is aiming toward owning 100 cars during
his lifetime, and since he doesn't own more than one or two at a time it's
time this Volvo moved on to a new, lucky owner. Even though the car must
move on, the seller mentioned this Volvo is tied for first in the
For the past two decades, this car has been blessed with very caring
owners. As a result this car runs, handles and responds as if it is giving
thanks for all the love and attention it has received. The front and rear
weight distribution is nearly even, the car is light relative to horsepower, and the
suspension has been lowered by about two inches and fitted with new tires
and shocks. So this 1967 Volvo 122S is about as fun to drive as any sports
car out there for sale today.
Take a look at the full specs at the link above as well as two detailed
photo galleries and more video. Give me a call to get your hands on this
fun sports car!
Thanks for watching - enjoy the drive by and test drive video and leave a
nice big thumbs up and a Like on this Volvo 122S.
The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to
1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International
Auto Show in April 1959.
The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well
as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model
configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo
provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including
the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this
step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts.
When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives
from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler,
German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the
two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e.,
within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began
its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series.
The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in
Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began
operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models,
359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of
them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.
1990 Lada Samara Start-up and Walk-around!
Hi! Today we're going to have a look at my friend's 1990 Lada Samara. These
cars are almost totally extinct now in Canada, but this one is still being
driven daily. She's not exactly mint, but I think it's worth a look, if
only because many people have never seen one. I don't think these cars were
ever sold in the U.S.; what about in Europe?
Will it Run? Episode 11: 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline (Part1 of 2)
This is the latest installation in our series on salvaging junk cars and
trying to get them to run, for no really good reason. This time our subject
is a 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe, parked since 1966! Parts of the
engine are missing, and so are the seats. The budget for repairs is about
$20, as usual. We'll trade our junker pickup for the missing parts. I
traded a couple of dead Mercs for this Chev because I thought it should be
saved, and not parted out. Join us for a tour of Coyote Auto Salvage as we
find the missing parts and take our new treasure home. In part 2, see if we
can get it to go, and look a little better, too. Re-uploaded due to
steady-cam feature malfunction.
Thanks for checking it out!
Will it Run? Episode 18: 1959 Chevy Biscayne! Part 1 of 3
Welcome back for another episode of our show about salvaging junk and
getting it to run just for the hell of it. This time it's a 1959 Biscayne 4
door sedan. It is in pretty rough shape after sitting around outside since
1971 or so. Pretty much everything is ruined, but I still think it would be
cool to see it moving around under its own steam again.
Join us as we try to make this old Chev go and tidy it up just enough to
look presentable while preserving the "farmyard" character of the car.

This was an film that I had meant to do in the fall of 2011, but ran out of
time for and pushed back to spring. Jonathan Bigelow's 1966 Volvo Amazon
has an interesting story that is even more fascinating to hear in full;
between its construction and now, it has crossed a number of borders, first
from Sweden to Norway, and then from Norway to the United States - and all
in one family.
